Coin Story

Oscar-Claude Monet (14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a founder of French Impressionist painting. The term "Impressionism" is derived from the title of his paintingImpression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which was exhibited in 1874. Monet's ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons. In 1893 he began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. This coin issue features one of his best known paintings exhibited in the Dallas Museum of Art, round like the original. This is the first round Painting in the series!

The reverse features the famous painting "Water Lilies" by Claude Monet. It is surrounded by 24 brilliant Swarowski crystals. The image offsets itself from the rest of the silver coin, due to the applied color.

Obverse Design
